Secure Device Management with AWS IoT Core

From manufacturing to de-commissioning, developers must protect their IoT application from hacks and safeguard user privacy through every stage of their application's lifecycle. Cypress has collaborated with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to make device management secure, easy-to-use, and cost-effective with Cypress' PSoC® 64 Standard Secure - AWS MCU and AWS IoT Core.


The Arm® Cortex®-M0+ core in the PSoC 64 Standard Secure AWS MCU serves as a security co-processor, isolated from the Arm Cortex-M4 core. This security co-processor comes configured with a hardware-based root-of-trust and runs Trusted Firmware-M security firmware, enabling secure boot and secure firmware updates along with other secure services.


PSoC 64 AWS Standard Secure MCUs have been FreeRTOS qualified and designed to work seamlessly with AWS IoT Core. All a developer needs to do is focus on their application running on the Arm Cortex-M4 core. Secure firmware deployed on the Arm Cortex-M0+ core takes care of the rest. Wireless connectivity stacks for Cypress Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® products are natively supported, helping to speed up development time.


PSoC 64 Secure MCUs can be securely provisioned and deployed at scale. Cypress has worked with third-party HSM and programming partners to deliver cost-effective, secure provisioning services, eliminating the cost and overhead in deploying your own secure HSM. In addition, PSoC 64 MCUs can be provisioned using off-the-shelf inventory without restrictive procurement terms.

PSoC 64 Standard Secure AWS MCUs

PSoC 64 Standard Secure AWS MCUs have been designed to work seamlessly with AWS IoT Core. Developers can use the Arm Cortex-M4 processor for their application running FreeRTOS. Using FreeRTOS, developers can access the isolated secure processing environment and root-of-trust services hosted on the Arm Cortex-M0+ processor. The Secure Processing Environment (SPE) runs open-sources Trusted Firmware-M security firmware that is delivered as a binary.
